Here's a poll for altering the design. I had a think to myself the other day while looking at the site - Harm prides itself on informed, literate reviews - so why do we post them in one small column to the right? I believe they should be our main focus.

Here's a rundown of the options:

* Keep it as it is - self explanatory
* Put snippets of reviews in the main column (which continue to open in a new window), replacing the news which will swap over to the right-hand side, with links to stories instead. The left-hand column will stay the same.
* A column each for review snippets, news and our left-hand info bar.
* A completely new design.

What do you think?

I think it'd be interesting for new visitors to have the interviews in the middle.  News in the middle is a great option too, but maybe the news on the side would still look good as long as it is noticeable.  That's just my opinion of course.

Cool, thanks MMM! We can still have news, but I think news is better handled by other sites such as Blabbermouth et. al. - we could have a few RSS feeds, perhaps?

Oh I was thinking more along the lines of news about the Harm.US website.  But yes, RSS feeds would totally work for news from other sources.
